Flint Councilman’s Lawsuit Against City Over Water Rate Increases Dismissed

courtesy City of Flint

A lawsuit filed by Flint City Council President Scott Kincaid against the City over water rate increases has been dismissed.

On Friday, the City of Flint’s Legal Department received word from Genesee County Circuit Court Judge Richard Yuille of the lawsuits dismissal. Kincaid alleged that recent water rate increases violated City ordinance.

The basis of Yuille’s decision was that the Emergency Manager Law at the time, Public Act 4, granted legal power to make necessary rate increases to cover true operating expenses. The increases had been made to reflect the true cost of delivering water to the City of Flint.
